The Community Visitors Scheme (CVS) is a Federal Government initiative which aims to help establish and strengthen links between people living in an aged care facility and their local community. The Scheme was developed as one way of enhancing the quality of life of residents by providing one on one friendship and companionship on a regular basis. There are approximately 170 organisations that coordinate the CVS and in excess of 5,000 volunteer visitors across Australia. Southern Volunteering (SA) coordinates the scheme within facilities in the City South, Southern Adelaide and Fleurieu Peninsular areas and is funded for 104 volunteers.
